This Nest Box and Bird Feeder Camera System offers everything you need to get really close up images of garden birds nesting, roosting and feeding all year round
Designed to be incredibly easy to set up, this kit comes with everything you need to obtain amazing live images on your own TV or *computer
The Nest Box - As well as looking good in any garden the Combi NestBox and Feeder has been manufactured using high quality Western Red Cedar (from well managed sources) and is designed to meet RSPB recommendations. This mult-species nest box has a removeable front panel (pre-drilled with a 32mm entrance hole) making it suitable for the widest range of garden birds including
The nest box roof incorporates a sliding drawer and quick release bracket in which the camera is mounted. This neatly keeps the camera and connectors safe, dry and away from the nesting birds.
The Camera System - Sliding out the camera drawer in the nest box reveals the high quality, miniature colour video camera. All of our nestbox cameras are manufactured to our own specification and exacting standards. The camera used in this kit is one of our STANDARD RESOLUTION CMOS type cameras and has a resolution of 420TVL (TV Lines). This will produce colour images during the day and B&W images at night. Infrared light is invisible to the human eye and to birds so it will not affect their natural roosting / nesting process in any way. We use a specific type of Infrared light designed to give the optimum illumination levels inside our nest boxes. This virtually eliminates the bright white spot (known as white out) that plagues many other kits available, producing great images whatever time of day or night you are viewing. The built in microphone enables you to hear as well as see whats going on inside the nest box or at the feeder and the manually adjustable focus lens helps to ensure pin sharp images everytime.
The camera is attached to a generous 20m of professional weatherproof cable which simply attaches to your TV, DVD/video recorder or *computer. This single cable contains the feed for video and audio and also transfers power to the camera. The cable has three connectors on the end of it. They are black, yellow and white. The black connector attaches to the 12v DC mains power adaptor (supplied) to provide power to your camera. The yellow (video) and white (audio) connectors plug directly into a spare AV or Scart socket on your TV, DVD/video recorder or *computer. Simply plug these in, switch over to the appropriate AV channel, sit back and wait for the show to start!
The Feeder Cam - What makes this camera system so versatile and different from anything else on the market today is that if a pair of birds do not nest in your birdbox, or it is no longer the nesting season, simply slide out the drawer in the roof of the nest box, unclip the camera and pop it into the supplied Feeder Cam housing. Hang a bird feeder from the housing and you will now have close up footage of birds on your feeder and a nest box that can still be used at a later date. A truly versatile system that can be used all year round!
Please Note: Footage has been compressed for viewing over the internet. Actual footage will be even better!

This kit can be connected straight to your computer if you have the appropriate connections. Look for a round yellow socket (the same as on your TV) on the back of your PC. If you have one of these connectors on your PC it will most likely be on the graphics card, a TV card or a dedicated capture card. If you dont have this connection or you plan to use a laptop we would recommend using one of our Video to USB adaptors. All you need is a spare USB socket and an audio jack input socket (most computers will have these). Software is supplied to get you started (we have XP/Vista and Apple Mac versions available) but once connected you can pretty much use any piece of software that can accept a live video input (eg. most webcam software). We recommend I-catcher Wildlife . This has full motion detection capabilities and much more!
You will have the opportunity to add accessories to this kit such as extension cables and the video to USB adaptor after you click on the ADD TO BASKET button above.
